  Veronica Lake was a popular and critically acclaimed actress during the '40's. She played the femme fatale in many of her films. Alan Ladd was her co-star in four films. Her trademark was her "peekaboo" hairstyle, when her shoulder length locks often hid her right eye.

yes, thx a lot, my daughter is perfectly well now and we were very lucky with the weather : the children enjoyed the swimming pool and the beach ! Are you planning any travel this summer ? or maybe a family meeting for your birthday... happy birthday to you dear ! :cute: :magic: :magic: :birthday: :hug: :kiss: :kiss:

Thank you for wishing me a happy birthday, Marie. I appreciate that. No, Ed and I haven't made any travel plans until November, when we will be going to Albuquerque, New Mexico. Our daughter Janet, is hosting an 80th birthday party for my sister, Joan. Joan will be flying into ABQ from Kalamazoo, Michigan. (The town I grew up in.) I last saw my sister two years ago, at my 80th birthday party. That was held at Janet's also. Before that, I had not seen Joan in eleven years, but we had stayed in touch by phone and e-mail. Years ago Joan and George, and Ed and I, all lived in ABQ so it's a little like coming home for Joan to be there. Her husband George died about five years ago. :hug: :hug: :hug: :blowkiss: :blowkiss: :kiss: :kiss:

wow, such a huge family in a huge country, things are really different in US, when you say "far" you mean REALLY FAR compared to here (France is such a little country, you can go through it almost in a day). It's gonna be great to see your sister, phone calls and mails are fine but there's nothing like hugging your dear ones :love: :love: :hug: :blowkiss: :blowkiss:

Yes, it is about a 10 hour drive to Albuquerque, including a couple of stops (gas, food, w/c) if we do it in one day. Amarillo, Texas is about half way, so sometimes...if we get a late start, we will stop and spend the night there, and finish the trip the next day. It is a little over 500 miles from our house to our daughter, Janet's house. :hug: :hug: :hug: :kiss: :blowkiss:

I'm sorry dear! I failed to answer everything you asked me earlier. Our family is too widely scattered now, for an easy family get-together. Two of our children live in New Mexico; one lives in Texas, and another lives in South Carolina. In a country as large as ours, that means there are quite a few miles between us. :hug: :hug: :blowkiss: :blowkiss: :kiss:

There is a rhyme (short verse) in sub-standard English that illustrates how large the State of Texas is. It goes like this: The sun has riz (risen), The sun has set, And here we is (are) In Texas yet. :hug: :hug: :blowkiss: :blowkiss: :hi:

great ! I love this ! I didn't know about this kind of "rhyme" before, it reminds me a bit the japaneese "aikus" :cute: :thumbup: :magic: :blowkiss:

According to the web, that verse was put upon a postcard in the early 1900's by a Hobo. (A hobo was a person who had no established home and wandered from place to place, often hopping freight trains.) If you were to drive from Texarkana, TX (borders Texarkana, Arkansas in the East) to El Paso, Texas (borders Cuidad Juarez, Mexico in the far West) it is about 814 miles and it would take you about 11 hours and 34 minutes. (Some say it would take 12 hours. I suppose that depends upon how fast one is driving, how many stops, etc.)

:thumbup: :cute: thanks for the explanation, I didn't know what "hobo" means, there was a well known song called "like a hobo" a few years ago. :) :blowkiss:

Gracias, dear friend. I did not forget your birthday, although you probably thought I did. I ordered a Jacquie Lawson birthday card for you on February 8, to be sent to you on February 23rd, but you never opened it. I sent the same birthday card again on March 16, but you did not open it then, either. Looking back now, I realize that I should have sent you an e-mail instead. You probably thought a Jacquie Lawson card was a virus, but it isn't. They are interesting cards for all occasions, designed by a lady and her staff in the UK. I've been a member of that website for three years. So I'm sending belated birthday wishes to you now, five months later. :birthday: :birthday: :hug: :hug: :blowkiss: :blowkiss: :kiss: Joyce

Thank you ever so much, dear Henry. Your birthday wishes are appreciated. My husband and I are dining out tonight. We'll probably go somewhere for a steak dinner. It isn't as though I don't get the opportunity to eat out often, because I do. But often I would prefer to eat at home where I'm in charge of the kitchen.

Thank you so much, Patrick. It is kind of you to remember me. I do not expect to have many more birthdays. When one gets to the grand old age of 82, you realize you are on a downward slope.

Je suis désolé d'entendre parler de la perte de votre fille. Nous avons perdu notre fils aîné en Mars 2011. Quatre de nos enfants sont encore en vie: trois filles et un fils. Oui, Oklahoma City fait partie du midwest sud. Avant OK est devenue un Etat, il a été appelé «territoire indien». Contrairement à d'autres États cependant, nous n'avons pas de réserves dans notre état. Amérindiens sont libres de vivre n'importe où dans le voulait OK. Quand les hommes blancs ont commencé à déplacer l'Ouest, certains de nos tribus de l'Est étaient déjà installés (la culture des plantes) et relativement civilisée, par rapport à ceux qui parcouraient les plaines. OKC centralisée est un peu un point de division dans notre état. Terres à l'est de OKC est plus vallonné et il ya plus d'arbres là-bas. Terres à l'ouest de OKC commence à se stabiliser et les arbres sont plus rares. Terres dans la moitié occidentale de notre état n'est pas très bon pour l'agriculture. Le sol de l'Oklahoma partout, est de couleur rouge. "Oklahoma a obtenu son nom d'un chef Choctaw, nommé Allen Wright. Il a suggéré le nom en 1866, à partir des mots indiens,« okla homma », qui signifie« peuple rouge ».« La dernière phrase a été prise à partir de Wikipedia. :hug: :blowkiss:

Je regarde assez souvent les experts , preuve à l'appui , FBI porté disparu qui reste mon préféré , bones , j'essaie de me faire une idée de comment on vit chez vous , et des produits de consommation qui diffèrent de chez nous . Je me permet cette question , si par hasard dans vos déplacement vous pouviez avoir des infos sur , s'il existent des livres ou revues avec surtout des photos de charles bronson . Une autre question , et si ça ne vous ennuies pas , si je vous donnes mon adresse mail , pourriez vous me poster des images de votre ville et alentours , merci .
